We have two kinds of dependencies in this project: tools and Angular framework code. The tools help us manage and test the application.
- We get the tools we depend upon via
npm, the [Node package manager][npm].
- We get the Angular code via
bower, a [client-side code package manager][bower].
- In order to run the end-to-end tests, you will also need to have the [Java Development Kit (JDK)][jdk] installed on your machine. Check out the section on end-to-end testing for more info.
We have preconfigured
npm to automatically run
bower so we can simply do:
Behind the scenes this will also call
bower install. After that, you should find out that you have
two new folders in your project.
node_modules- contains the npm packages for the tools we need
app/bower_components- contains the Angular framework files
Note that the
bower_components folder would normally be installed in the root folder but
angular-seed changes this location through the
.bowerrc file. Putting it in the
makes it easier to serve the files by a web server.
Run the Application
We have preconfigured the project with a simple development web server. The simplest way to start this server is:
